tv Outnumbered FOX News June 14, 2016 9:00am-10:01am PDT
jon: scary story out of the washington post we were just reading, russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the democratic national committee, gained all the opposition research on donald trump, read emails. they've been in there for a year. heather: we are looking into that one. jon: we will be following up in the next hour of "happening now", "outnumbered" start right now. >> we begin with a fox news alert, awaiting president obama to make remarks at any moment after he meets with his national security team that he's doing right now. we are told the president is getting an update on the investigation into the orlando massacre, terror attack as you know and reviewing his administration's efforts to defeat the islamic date damages. this is "outnumbered". i'm harris faulkner. melissa francis , fox news legal analyst and host of justice with judge janine, judge janine shapiro herself and today's hashtag one lucky guy. it's great to have back before ambassador to the united nations, ambassador john bolton. you always laugh when i say
that because you don't really feel outnumbered. >> i'm always happy to be here so far. >> it's good to have you today. especially today with your expertise so thanks for being here. for the past 90 minutes, president obama has been hobbling with his national security team, getting an update on the attack in orlando and reviewing his administration's efforts in their work to degrade and destroy isis. on thursday, the president will travel to orlando to pay his respects to the victims of the nightclub massacre. as soon as the president speaks, we will carry it right here on fox and you can watch it first. we will bring you the chilling account from a survivor in the past hour from orlando regional medical center. the attacker shot angel colon several times. he lay on the floor as the carnage happened all around him. it's hard, but let's listen together. >> unfortunately i hear him come back and he's shooting that's everyone that's already dead on the floor, making sure they are dead area i was able to be over and i can just see him
shooting at everyone. and i can hear the shotguns closer and i look over and he shoots the girl next to me. and i'm just there laying down, i'm thinking i'm next, i'm dead . so i don't know how but by the glory of god he shoots toward my head butit hits my hand . and then he shoots me again and it hits the side of my head. i had no reaction, i was just prepared to stay there laying down so he won't know that i'm alive. and he's just doing this for another five, 10 minutes, shooting all over the place. >> our fellow americans, ambassador, under siege. it hurts to hear it. >> this was a cold-blooded attack area this fellow knew exactly what he was doing. he may be read arranged by
our likes, he was operating according to his own logic and his own ideology and i think that this really is now a test of presidential leadership. the united states has been attacked. 49 innocent civilians have been killed in an act of war and i don't think we seem pleasant presidential leadership yet. we got the two contenders for the presidency in november, we want to see how they react. the president has not reacted appropriately yet and this is the moment when the united states has to decidewhether we are going to defend ourselves or not . >> who we are going to be. you and i have talked previously about turning war into criminal acts. i want to get your vision on that. you know, it's almost a sad commentary that the president is now looking at this as a criminal act, just like he wants to empty guantanamo and bring them here to federal court in new york city. i think that it's got to be a point where so many americans
have died, you cannot deny that this is a war on the american people. that everyone of us is a potential victim with a target on us. that is not crime, that is more than prime. you want to talk about a hate crime? we are being targeted because we're americans and what this president is doing is by removing language from the federal bureau of investigation training manuals and talking about the word jihad , it's surreal. saying days before this, let's talk in plain english. you know what question mark sharia is plain english. sharia law requires that you punish anyone and that you kill them and to make believe this is some job who with all due respect, i tried enough murder cases myself, they're not deranged. they're evil. and for us to kind of excuse it as crazy, the man is someone who's following sharia law. he is yelling olive black
bar. he was in the mosque a couple days before and this president ought to start feeling sorry for us instead of the people of the muslims and i have no problem with them. >> what's interesting, it's like the scrubbing of intel almost melissa that we have heard from the analyst in the way this administration wanted to describe the enemy, the islamic state and we heard from those analysts who came on the record and said look, we are being told to change the narrative about the enemy we are fighting and now the very people as the judge pointed out in our cast with keeping the rest of us safe from these savages are going to scrub words like jihad and sharia law. >> it was amazing when i watched the presidential address early in the morning and he came out and it seemed like what he was doing immediately was trying to minimize and mitigate and i understand a basic instinct to try to calm things down and calm people down in the wake of something terrible happening but i feel like we're so far past that.
we've seen though many of these events go on and the only thing they have in common, when you look at san bernardino, you look at what happened in france overnight, you look at this, what they have in common is islamic extremists read some use pressure cookers, some use guns, some use knives but they all have the same goal and we need to address that aggressively and he's not. >> ambassador, we know he's going to be making these remarks after a meeting with the national security council at the treasury department and the guidance we are being given on his remarks is that he is going to focus on cutting off funding for isis. you expect him today to go out and cut give a more detailed approach to the fight against isis question mark. >> i don't think so. we are seeing the first failure of presidential leadership. let me pick up on melissa!. one thing he said yesterday was a little incoherent as it often is when he doesn't have a teleprompter but he said referring to the terrorists , at the end of the day this is
something we're going to have to grapple with. let me contrast that with franklin roosevelt on december 8 1941 where he said no matter howlong it takes to overcome this premeditated invasion , the american people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. that is a war president. and i'll tell you, barack obama is no franklin roosevelt. >> these eight years away from his promises of not being a war president and now we have reality at our doorstep. to let everybody know, we are awaiting the president but are being told he is still waiting with his national security team and the minute he stepped up to his lectern, we will take you there life. >> brand-new details on the government planning of the orlando nightclub terror attacks. investigators looking into whether omar mateen was shouting and even larger target. chief intelligence correspondent katherine harris is live in washington with the latest there. >> i've learned there is evidence of significant premeditation and the shooter omar mateen did surveillance
of at least two targets prior to buying guns about a week before sunday's attack. we understand their surveillance included the pulse nightclub as well as downtown disney. the fbi has mateen's samsung phone and has gained access to his computer. investigators are looking for direct digital evidence of his surveillance of these targets. for instance, when searches for the maps as well as hours of operation. disney said in a statement last night, unfortunately we've all been living in a world of uncertainty and we have been increasing our security members property for a safeguards as magnetometers, additional k-9 unit and what officers on site as well as less visible systems that employ state-of-the-art security technology. i've also confirmed the relationship between omar mateen and american suicide bomber was deeper than previously understood by federal investigators. the bombers returned to florida in 2013 is under fresh scrutiny. mateen's name surfaced in an
fbi investigation of the bomber, a palestinian american named moner abu-salha in 2014 after he blew himself up in syria on behalf of the al qaeda affiliate. in 911 calls, mateen pledged allegiance to isis, the boston marathon bombers and his friend, the american suicide bomber. >> the fbi closed his file, the obama ministration trees radical islamic threats as common crimes. i'm not trying to solve a crime, i'm trying to prevent an attack and if we kept the file open and saul what he was up to, i think we could have stopped it. i'm not suggesting he be followed because he's a muslim. i'm suggesting he be followed because of what he did and what he said. >> the fbi director james comey told us yesterday this earlier investigation of mateen was a full 10 month investigation by the fbi and there was no evidence at that time that he had committed a crime or directly supported
terrorism and that is the legal standard the fbi is held to. thank you. and after, i want to get to you. this is not the only target, we arelearning . >> that's very interesting. i think the connection with the suicide bomber also raises the question whether there are further connections, whether there's a broader network here. because what this indicates is the money very serious about his mission. and the notion that there might be larger linkages, that's not homegrown although i think that distinction is fallacious in any event but the extent to which this threat continues is something that definitely needs to be focused on. i think the fbi for 7 and a half years has been operating under constraints. i don't think you enhance your career at the fbi if you find evidence of islamic terrorism and i think that at least one possible explanation for booting these earlier concepts. >> the whole concept that if you are an fbi agent and the fbi, the first thing he does
or his attorney generally say this isn't about islam, it isn't about muslims. the message from the commander-in-chief is you know, don't be politically incorrect and that's what led to fort hood and in this situation you know, on justice the other night i had a guy by the names of james bono who was a justice, i think it was one in the morning but he talked about high school, how the guy was cheering when planes hit the towers. he talked about the fact that he was always making believe that he was in the airplane, that he was related to osama bin laden, that he was actually thrown out of school . if you look at this guy's history and the fbi is pulling back, i get that you can't charge him with a crime but we must change that reasonable suspicion and keep people on a list so they can not by guns and that's the problem. had they continued, he might not have gotten that ar. >> that becomes a tough thing
because then you're saying you want to prevent somebody from buying a gun who has been convicted of a crime. iunderstand in this situation but you see how that would've presented this. he could also have made a pressure cooker and you're going down the road taking away people's rights . >> there's no question when i find permits, when i was a judge and people wanted to buy a gun, i could say to them what do you want the gun for? i could make a discretionary decision that you don't get on because you seem a little off, you don't have a race reason. i'm a gun owner. i love the nra. i am not speaking for them in houston but at the same time, what you want to make sure of is these people with a history like this kid got thrown out of school for that reason, investigated by the fbi, this is saudi arabia twice and come on. >> 10 days at the time. >> this is why the distinction between the war paradigm and the law enforcement paradigm is so important. if you were worried that somebody wanted a gun to knock off the local starbucks, that would be one thing but if you think you're
engaged in defending the country then this kind of behavior and these trips to saudia arabia were real flags to make your operating under different circumstances where what constitutes a regional reasonable suspicion depends on different facts. if you took the constraints off the dea, other state and local law enforcement in the past seven and half years we be in different circumstances i am wondering what the disconnect is between information that you get and information that you need because the information is out there. it's on somebody's database. people are hacking the heck out of people to get the stuff so as a judge, are you getting what you need at that point? what do we need to do to get people to share? i can get my kids to share. >> part of the problem is that first of all, we have a joint terrorist task force in most jurisdictions but that's primarily in areas that are big-city areas. so when small-town america, there is no handoff of information from the feds to
the locals and having worked with the fed and i love jim comey, i worked with him but they are very close to the best when it comes to information and they're not going to share that under the fear that i'm being an islam of hope. hogwash. we are in jeopardy.disney world. i mean, this is war. >> we are waiting on those remarks from the president. were told this meeting has wrapped up. were going to bring those to you live as soon as this happens. meantime, two different takes on how to put a stop to terror. hillary clinton and donald trumpgiving dueling speeches on stopping such attacks. which plan would work the best to keep americans safe? and a moment of silence on the house floor or the orlando victims . erupting in chaos.democrats walking out in protest. others chanting open house speaker. is that the way to get their point on guns or was it just plain impetus.
>> terrible at golf for as long as i can. new patented ensure enlive has hmb plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. for the strength and energy to do what you love. new ensure enlive. always be you. do you really know what it means? no. the answer is no. because it's complicated and science-y. but with my nutrition mixes, you don't have to worry about the science. you can just put it in your pie hole. planters. nutrition starts with nut. think fixing your windshield is a big hassle? not with safelite. this family needed their windshield replaced but they're daughters heart was set on going to the zoo. so guess what, i met them at the zoo. service that fits your schedule. that's another safelite advantage. ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ we may have gotten the
two-minute warning for the president to step up to the lectern and the nation. one more time, you heard from him already a couple times since the massacre in orlando but he has met with his national security team so the conversation now, we are led to believe will be focusing in on the investigation and what happens next against the savages of the islamic state and haul all that plays a role and sandra, as we watch this, this comes on the heels of the woman who would like his job on his democratic party team, hillary clinton changing the conversation a little bit by using the word radical islamism which they both have been under fire for for not really looking at what the enemy and the problem is he has identified
and named the enemy, the question is will we see the president do so as well? we know he's been meeting with his purity team and the guidance we are getting on this is the meeting is going to focus on cutting off funding for isis so if you provide any detailed explanation as to how he's going to do that, certainly there has been criticism that he has not come out strong enough and in the aftermath of the worst shooting, the worst massacre of this country has ever seen >> the other part of this that we will be watching for a course, the president steps up, i will stop, president obama. >> i just met with my national security council as part of our regular effort to review and intensify our campaign to destroy the terrorist group isil. our meeting was planned before the terrible attack in orlando. but obviously, that tragedy, the awful loss of life shaped much of our work today. in all of our efforts, foremost in our minds is the
loss and grief of the people of orlando. those who died, those who are still recovering. the families who have seen their loved ones farmed. the friends of ours who are lesbian and gay and bisexual and transgender who were targeted. i want to remind them that they are not alone. the american people and our allies and friends all over the world stand with you. and are thinking about you and are praying for you. as director comey has said, we currently do not have any information to indicate that a foreign terrorist group directed the attack in orlando. it is increasingly clear,
however, that the killer took in extremist information and propaganda over the internet. he appears to have been an angry, disturbed, unstable young man who became radicalized area as we know all too well, terrorist groups like isil have called on people around the world and here in the united states to attack innocent civilians. their propaganda, their videos, their postings are pervasive and more easily accessible then we want. this individual appears to have absorbed some of that and during his killing spree, the shooter in orlando pledged allegiance to isil. as i said before, these loan actors for small cells of terrorists are very hard to detect andvery hard to prevent. but across our government ,
at every level, federal, state and local, military and civilian, we are doing everything in our power to stop these kinds of attacks. we work to succeed 100 percent of the time and an attacker as we saw in orlando only has to succeed wants. our extraordinary personnel, our intelligence, our military, our homeland security, our law enforcement have prevented many attacks and saved many lives and we can never thank them enough. but we are also bird by the fact that despite the extraordinary hard work that something like orlando can occur. in our meeting today, director comey updated us on the investigation in orlando. secretary johnson reviewed the measures we continue to take on behalf of our homeland security. secretary carter and chairman dunford reviewed the military
campaign against isil and i want to thank secretary lou and his team here at treasury for hosting us and for their tireless efforts to cut off the money that isil relies on to fund its terror network. at the outset, i want to reiterate our objective in this fight. our mission is to destroy isil. since i last updated the american people two months ago, we seen this continues to be a difficult fight but we are making significant progress. over the past two months, i've authorized a series of steps to ratchet up our fight against isil. additional us personnel including special forces in syria to assist local forces battling isil there. additional advisors to work more closely with iraqi security forces and additional assets including attack helicopters. and additional support or local forces in northern iraq. our aircraft continued to launch from the us harry truman and now in the mediterranean, our b-52 bombers are hitting isil with
precision strikes. targets are being identified and it even more quickly. so far, 13,000 airstrikes read this campaign at this stage is firing on all cylinders. as a result, isil is under more pressure than ever before. isil continues to lose key leaders. this includes psalm on optional heat, thesilk senior military leader in modal , mossad also donnie who plotted external attacks, shakira was able, isil's military leader in iraq sandbar province andmihir alali , the top isil commander in fallujah. so far, we've taken out more than 120 top isil leaders and commanders and our message is clear. if you target america and our allies, you will not be safe or it you will never be safe area isil continues to lose
ground in iraq. in the past two months, local forces in iraq through coalition support have liberated the western town of rooftop and also pushed up the euphrates river valley, liberating the strategic town of teak and bracing the isil siege. iraqi forces have surrounded fallujah and begun to move into the city. meanwhile in the north, iraqi forces continue to push up the tigris river valley, making gains around much more and preparing to tie the noose around isil in modal. all told, isil has now lost nearly half of the populated territory it once controlled in a rack and it will lose more. isil continues to lose ground in syria as well. assisted by our special operations forces, the coalition of local forces is now pressuring the key count of monday which means the news is tightening around isil in raqqa as well. in short, our coalition continues to be on offense. isil is on defense and it's
now been a whole year since isil has been able to mount a successful offensive operation in either syria or iraq. as isil continues to lose territory it also continues to lose the money that is its lifeblood. as a result of our strikes against oil infrastructure and supply lines, we believe that we cut isil's revenue from oil bymillions of dollars . and destroying the storage sites where they keep their cash, we deprived isil of many millions more. next to the great work of secretary lou and many others here today, and working with nations and financial institutions around the world, isil is now effectively cut off from the international financial system. cutting off isil's money may not be as america's military strikes but it is critically important and we are seeing the results. isil's cash reserves are down, it has had to cut salaries for its fighters,
it's resorting to more extortion of those in its grip and by isil's own admission, some of its own leaders have been caught stealing cash and gold. once again, isil's truenature has been revealed. these are not religious warriors. they are funds and they are feeds . continuing to push on this front i want to mention it is critical for our friends in the senate to confirm my nominee for undersecretary of terrorism and financial intelligence. adam has served in democratic and republican administrations, everyone agrees is imminently qualified. he has been working on these kind of issues for years. it's now been more than four years since i nominated him. more than 420 days and he still has but not been given a whole though. there's no good reason for it. it is inexcusable. so it's time for the senate to do its job, put our national security first and have a vote on adam 's human that can leave lead our fight
against isil and keep our country safe. isil's ranks are shrinking as well. their morale is sinking. as one defector said, isil is not bringing islam to the world and people need to know that. thanks to international efforts, the flow of foreign fighters including from america to syria and iraq has plummeted in fact, her intelligence committee now assesses the ranks of isil fighters has been reduced to the lowest levels in more than 2 and a half years. even as we continue to destroy isil militarily, we are addressing larger forces that have allowed these terrorists to gain traction in parts of the world. with regard to iraq, this means helping iraqis stabilize liberated communities and promote inclusive governance so isil cannot return. with regard to syria, it means our continued support for the fragile cessation of
hostilities there. the cessation of hostilities has not stopped all or even most of the hardship on the syrian people. the hardship on civilians. and the us on regime has been the principal culprit in violating the cessation of hostilities.isil and alamo struck which is al qaeda's affiliate in syria also continue to terrorize syrians but as fragile and incomplete as the cessation is, it has a live and has allowed the delivery of some lifesaving aid to syrians were in desperate need. and as difficult as it is, we will continue to push or a political process that can end the civil war and result in a transition away from a sod. beyond syria and libya, beyond syria and iraq, isil is also losing ground in
libya. forces of the libyan unity government are going after isil in their stronghold insert and will continue to assist the new libyan government as it works to secure its country. lastly, here at home, if we really want to helplaw enforcement protect americans from homegrown extremists , the kind of tragedies that occurred at san bernardino and that now have occurred in orlando, there is a meaningful way to do that. we have to make it harder for people who want to kill americans to get their hands on weapons of war that let them killdozens of innocents . it is absolutely true, we cannot prevent every tragedy. but we know that consistent
with the second amendment, there are commonsense steps that could reduce gun violence and could reduce the lethality of somebody who intends to do other people harm. we should give atf the resources they need to enforce the gun laws we already have. people with possible ties to terrorism who aren't allowed on a plane shouldn't be allowed to buy a gun. and i'm talking about being tough on terrorism . actually, be tough on terrorism andstop making it as easy as possible for terrorists to buy assault weapons . reinstate the insult weapons ban. make it harder for terrorists to use these weapons to kill us. otherwise, despite extraordinary efforts across our government, by local law
enforcement, by our intelligence agencies, despite military, despite all the sacrifices folks make, these kinds of events are going to keep on happening. and the weapons are only going to get more powerful. and let me make a final point. for a while now, the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against isil is to criticize this administration and me or not using the phrase radical islam. that's the key, they tell us. we can't beat isil unless we call them radical islamists .when exactly would using this label accomplish? what exactly would it change? would it make isil less committed to trying to kill
americans? would it bring in more allies? is there a military strategy that is served by this? the answer is none of the above. calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. this is a political distraction. since before i was president, i've been clear about how extremist groups have perverted islam to justify terrorism. as president, i have repeatedly called on our muslim friends and allies at home and around the world to work with us to reject this twisted interpretation of one of the worlds great religions. there has not been a moment
in my 7 and a half years as president where we have not been able to pursue a strategy because we didn't use the label radical islam. not once has an advisor of mine said man, if we really used that phrase, we are going to turn this whole thing around. not once. so if someone seriously thinks that we don't know who we are fighting, if there's anyone out there who thinks were confused about who our enemies are, that would come as a surprise to the thousands ofterrorist we've taken off the battlefield . if the implication is that those of us up here and the
thousands of people around the country and around the world who are working to defeat isil art taking the fight seriously, that would come as a surprise to those who spent these last 7 and a half years dismantling al qaeda for example. including the men and women in uniform who put their lives at risk area and the special forces that i ordered to get bin laden and are now in the ground in iraq and in syria. they know full well who the enemy is. so does the intelligence and law enforcement officers who spend countless hours disrupting plots. and protecting all americans. including politicians who tweet and appear on cable news shows. they know who the nature of the enemy is.
so there's no magic to the phrase radical islam. it's a political talking point. it's not a strategy. and the reason i am careful about how i describe this threat has nothing to do with political correctness. and everything to do with actually defeating extremism. groups like isil and al qaeda want to make this more a war between islam and america or between islam and the west. they want to claim that they are the true leaders of over 1 billion muslims around the world who reject their crazy notions. they want us to validate them
. i am implying that they speak for those billion plus people, that they speak for islam. that's their propaganda. that's how they recruit. and if we fall into the trap of painting all muslims with a broad brush and imply that we are at war with an entire religion then we are doing the terrorists work for them. i've been told up until this point that this argument about labels is mostly partisan rhetoric. and sadly, we've all become accustomed to that kind of partisanship.even when it involves the fight against theseextremist groups . and that kind of yapping has
not prevented. the government from doing their jobs. from sacrificing and working really hard to protect the american people. but we are now seeing how dangerous this kind of mindset and this kind of thinking can be. we are starting to see where this kind of rhetoric and loose talk and sloppiness about who exactly we are fighting, where this can lead us. we now have proposals from the presumptive republican nominee for president of the united states the bar all muslims from immigrating to america. we're language that singles out immigrants and suggests entire religious communities are complicit in violence.
where does this stop? the orlando killer, one of the san bernardino killers, the fort hood killer, they were all us citizens. are we going to start treating all muslim americans differently? are we going to start subjecting them to special surveillance? are we going to start discriminating against them because of their faith mark we've heard these suggestions during the course of this campaign . you republican officials actually agree with this? because that's not theamerica we want . it doesn't reflect our
democratic ideals. it won't make us more safe, it will make us less safe. fueling isil's notion that the west heats muslims. making young muslims in this country and around the world feel like no matter what they do, they are going to be under suspicion. and under attack.it makes muslim americans feel like their government is betraying them. it betrays the very values america stands for. we've gone through moments in our history before when we acted out of fear and we came to regret it. we've seen our government mistreat our fellow citizens.
and it has been a shameful part of our history. this is a country founded on basic freedoms including freedom of religion. we don't have religious tests here. our founders, our constitution, our bill of rights are clear about that. and if we ever abandon those values, we would not only make it a lot easier to radicalize people here and around the world, but we would have betrayed the very things we are trying to protect area the pluralism and the openness, our rule of law, our civil liberties, the very things that make this country great, the very things that make us
exceptional. and then the terrorists would have one. and we cannot let that happen. i will not let that happen. you know, two weeks ago i was at the commencement ceremony at the air force academy. and it could not have been more inspiring. to see these young people stepping up, dedicated to serve and protect this country. and part of what was inspiring was the incredible diversity of these cadets. we saw cadets who are straight applauding classmates who were openly gay. we saw cadets born here in america applauding classmates who were immigrants and love this country so much they decided they wanted to be part of our armed forces.
we saw cadets and families of all religions applaud cadets who are proud, patriotic muslim americans, serving their country in uniform, ready to lay their lives on the line to protect you and protect me. we saw male cadets applauding for female classmates who can now serve on that position. that's the america military. that's america. one team. one nation. those are the values that isil is trying to destroy. and we shouldn't help them do it. our diversity and our respect for one another are drawing on the talents of everybody in this country are making sure that we are treating everybody fairly, that we're
not judging people on the basis of what faith they are orwhat race they are or what ethnicity they are or what their sexual orientation is . that's what makes this country great. that's a spirit we see in orlando. that's the unity and resolve that will allow us to defeat isil. that's what will preserve our values and our ideals that define us as americans. that's how we are going to defend this nation and that's how we're going to defend our way of life. thank you very much. >> the president wrapping up his what we thought would be
first just an enumeration of the things they were going to do coming out of that national security advisory meeting with his team. he talked about financially going after the terrorists, going after the islamic state and other terror groups as well by cutting off their financial revenue streams and basically freedom just to get that oil money if they can get it at all. he said he's got his treasury team working on that. treasury secretary lou obviously hosting this event, he said and he listed all the other people who were in the room, the defense secretary, dhs secretary, defense secretary james comay was in the room as well and then the president took a turn and if you've been watching and i've been following social mediaas we've been watching, the president speak , it was a very decided delivery tone area he first called on congress to particularly the senate to put forth his nomination of more than a year ago for an undersecretary treasury department although he has a secretary and a
fully capable, capabilities have been to do whatever needs to be done, he feels this one person would make the difference and he made the argument for adam szubin and then the tone default even further into one we described here on the couch and i want to bring it out, as one of anger over the word radical islam area and nothing short of a lecture from this president. he did mention the victims but seemed to save his ire and his venom over that particular issue of why those words don't need to be applied in his estimation. i'm wondering what is the presumptive nominee of his party who he was just endorsed and is going to be joining on the trail, what is she thinking? because she just dropped that lingo? it seems that the difference in terms of his delivery was when he got into the political issues, the issue of guns and the issue of you know, what he considers possible anti-muslim
backlash. if this president had for one minute tried to give some empathy to the victims and their families in orlando, then we would have been hearing him on. this president more time about dealing with the fact that it's not a religious war, that we can't paint muslims with the same brush and you know, he starts by saying which is bizarre, or going to cut off isil's money. where have you been question mark before she went to isil's money. why you need one man to do it? i think the whole thing was an important embarrassment and with all due respect, you say he's careful what he calls them question mark this is a man who called them the jv squad are you kidding me? he talked about not using the
phrase radical islam, that wouldn't change anything. calling them the jv squad didn't help and when he laid out how we are winning, he said isil is losing and there was this long pause and he tries to fill in territory where they are losing ground. he says they are cutting salaries . that the terrorists are cutting the payments they're making . are you kidding me? i'll tell you what's free is when you go online and radicalize that way and you can bomb these small cells so we may be here in him there but now the ground has shifted ambassador ... >> let's talk about this beach itself because this is a failure of presidential leadership. the country has been attacked. 49 innocent people have been killed. it wants to hear from the president. what we're going to do to prevent this fromhappening. and instead we get a lecture from one of the most narcissistic individuals ever to hold that job . about what's wrong with the rest of us who don't have the tolerance that he does for people that he thinks are being unfairly criticized. instead of talking about the enemies of the united states and what he's going to do, he talked about his political
enemies. i just think that's unpresidential. i think it shows the president to be a small man and i think if i were hillary clinton now and i seriously wanted to be president, i would say, i would break with the president. i would say i reject this idea that somehow we are doing enough. as long as americans are dying, we are not doing enough. >> ambassador bolton, he went as far as just now to say not once has an advisor told me if we use the term radical islam we could really turn this thing around snark in a president is not an admirable trait and criticizing your political opponents in a speech to the nation at the time when they want to know what we are doing to protect ourselves from other attacks like this is beneath the dignity of the office. he's never been qualified to be commander-in-chief so again, i would say from hillary clinton's point of view, if you embrace this presidency for the duration
of this campaign, that is the ticket to lose right there. >> was this an unveiling something in this president we had not seen before? it's what we talked about harris for so long and that is he doesn't seem to have empathy or feelings for americans and for victims. it's always about you know, we can't be mean to the other guy. well, they're killing us and let's take your guns away. there cutting our heads off. it's a pressure cooker. and this whole thing is all about almost normalizing this behavior. it's like what he said at the prayer breakfast area and get off your high horse you christians. and it's not about christians and muslims, it's about radical muslims and i don't care if he was born here. the truth is, he lives in a family where the father apparently is pro-caliban. he went to saudi arabia twice. he met face-to-face with a syrian suicide bomber and he was on the fbi's list. let's start telling the american people and the victims families we are going
and the reason i am careful about how i describe this threat has nothing to do with political correctness. and everything to do with actually defeating extremism. >> clearly the president feeling passionately and by some estimations, very angry in his words and that passion coming after we were hit by a savage at a nightclub in orlando but not a savage for the use of radical islam in politics. >> that's what's detached from reality about the speech. the phrases and magical but it's reality. is the reality we are facing a hostile ideology and that it motivates people all around the world. the president's unwillingness to use it is because you
won't acknowledge the existence of the ideology. he knows there are people out there killing but you won't acknowledge the reason why. if he did, it would require a totally different strategy. he hasn't learned a thing aboutterrorism in 7 and a half years. >> what's interesting about the language or the lack of identifying it as such, it just waters down , when you get to the local fbi agents, the message is clear.we are not going after radical islamists. we are going after extremists from somewhere. >> all i can think about sandra are those worst of the worst we are about to transfer out of guantanamo bay and how thirsty after watching what a little radicalization can do and a nightclub in orlando. >> how thirsty they must be. >> i wanted to go back to the way the president started this speech by saying there's no proof that anoutside group directed this attack , that this man did become radicalized and took the info and i know we all had an immediate reaction, i know you did ambassador. >> this is like a criminal defense attorney trying to establish reasonable doubt. we don't have enough evidence. was the defendant?
what about the victims? the purpose the president had , should have had in mind here today is to rally the country to try to ease the pain and to say we will not let this happen again. instead, he's more worried about political commentary on the campaign trail . it's a complete distinction from reality. >> he called him an angry young man who is disturbed and basically blame him for spending time online. that's how we got to this place with all those people dead and what we heard about him walking and shooting people that are already down . >> as we were waiting for the president to allay our fears, we didn't get it in that speech. police asked, if you are alive raise your hand when they got to that nightclub. our hands are in the air mister president. ambassador, good to see you. more outnumbered online coming up, "happening now". >>
even a claim satisfaction guaranteeeeeeeeeee! in means protection plus unique extras only from an expert allstate agent. it's good to be in, good hands. >> good afternoon. a new report that russian government hackers broke in computers in the democratic national committee. >> according to the post they stole all of the opposition research on donald trump. we have brand new details on this bizarre story. >> this is an attack on orlando and night club and gays. when is enough, enough? when are we going to stop the radical islam? >> new questions about the man
